TO/TOO/TWO TUESDAY for December 16, 2008


There's nothing like getting a homonym error inked onto yourself so that you're adorned with improper grammar for the rest of your life. The most annoying part? The douchebag who got this tattoo doesn't ever have to see it himself if he doesn't want to, since it's on his back. But every time he takes off his shirt, everyone around him has to see it. Hopefully this guy lives somewhere cold, where it's necessary to wear a shirt most of the time, and not somewhere like southern California where he could conceivably be shirtless a lot. Nobody wants to see this dude's homonym error...or his, um, handles. Right, ladies?

Gracias to PAT for spotting this one!

Several people sent that one to me, too. Ugh. Gross in so many ways....

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Very, VERY gross. I usually like tattoos on guys, but...not this tattoo...and CERTAINLY not this guy! Sorry that you have had to be subjected to this picture multiple times! NOT a pretty sight...

Obviously, this tattoo is part of a grass-roots campaign to end landmine usage. It suggests that your mines can be equated with death... so please, Miss Grammarphile, don't use that stockpile of landmines that I'm sure you have.

...and I'm defending idiocy why? Man, I must be bored. :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I can't even use the landmines to...um...eradicate bad grammar (or at least eliminate the people who use it frequently)? Dammit! No fun, I tell ya--no fun at all!

Not only is the grammar wrong, but look at the friggin' love handles on that fat bastard.

You're mine?

What's yours?

Is the Reaper on his back pointing at box of donuts?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Hahaha...bless your sarcastic, black heart, Moooooog. I was thinking along those same donut-related lines!

Carlos said...

That is freakin' beautiful! Douchebag is right!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I think you're more right on with "douchebag" than with "beautiful", Carlos. ;)

I know a very buff dude who thought he was getting a tatoo that meant "health" in chinese charactors but only looked it up later and found out it translated to "weak." Probably should have done some research first!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha! Poor guy. Yeah, research would have been key in this case...

Jill said...

I consider this tattoo a good thing, because it's like a permanent, built-in warning that homeboy is an idiot. In case the love handles and, presumably, his personality didn't scare me away, that atrocity certainly would.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

You're exactly right, Jill. I like the way you think! :)
